New Reframing Human Services Tools
We are proud to announce that the new reframing tools are available online!
Collaborating with our members, partners and funders, the Assembly’s National Reframing Initiative seeks to build public understanding of human services to encourage more vibrant civic participation and deepen support for effective programs. As part of this multi-year initiative, generously funded by the Kresge Foundation and Annie E. Casey Foundation, the Assembly engaged the FrameWorks Institute to develop an evidence-based strategy for reframing the work of the sector. We now have a robust set of tools available to equip our members and partners to integrate this new narrative into their advocacy, communications, and resource development strategies.

Breaking the Cycle of Poverty: Two-Generation Solutions
The recent economic downturn has tremendously impacted communities and families in the United States, especially young families. There is a growing chorus of voices calling for new models and solutions that meet the needs of both young parents and their children collectively. Two-generation programming provides an important poverty reduction roadmap for young families, making service providers, policy makers, and government officials critical stakeholders in moving this strategy forward. We are pleased to release our policy report, Breaking the Cycle of Poverty in Young Families: Two-Generation Policy Recommendations, thanks to generous support from the Annie E. Casey Foundation and ASCEND at the Aspen Institute. Read the report >>
Gloria Johnson-Cusack Featured on CNN Money
When Gloria joined us in April, she brought with her a burning passion to create more opportunities for more people through philanthropy. Her motivation? Her own life experience.
We are pleased to promote that CNN.com has included her as part of an ongoing digital series on upward mobility in America. As a native Washingtonian, Johnson-Cusack grew up in de facto segregated communities, attended rough public schools, and eventually matriculated to Sidwell Friends college preparatory school and Columbia University on scholarships and extensive financial aid. Her personal journey, grounded in unwavering community support, is a testament to her belief that where you grow up should not predetermine who you grow up to be. Her story reinforces the broader message of our highest priority at the National Human Services Assembly: Ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to reach their full potential.
